Bio

I'm an experienced entrepreneur, manager, consultant focused on business development for emerging digital technologies and delivering new product opportunities based on data driven insights.

As an Engagement Manager for the consultancy Quesnay, I help traditional enterprises respond to changes in the marketplace, develop and launch new products, and connect with the right partners and technologies they need in order to execute their growth strategies. I am also responsible for developing new partnerships with innovation labs and technology platforms if you are looking to expand your organization's reach.

Right now we are launching the Female Founders in Tech competition to support and create opportunities for technology startups let by women. Let me know if you or someone you know would like to contribute as a mentor, judge, or participant. https://www.quesnays.com/competitions
